All-New Generation Chevrolet Camaro Lose Weight


For a very long time, General Motors Company demonstrated all sorts of teasers with which the Internet was flooded, to the release of the new Chevrolet Camaro of the 6th generation and it began already several months before the official presentation. The show was held in Detroit (USA), in May 2015.

By the way, the development of the new Camaro was carried out with a clean sheet and this applies to both the technological and the technical part.

However, it is worth paying tribute to the designers, they were able to maintain the maximum similarity of the exterior of the car with its predecessors. In fact, this is a big advantage, because it is this image that attracts a large number of motorists around the world.

Refreshed Exterior

The exterior was refreshed and refreshed not globally, but a few precise touches brought the car more dynamism and expressiveness. As we already mentioned above, the Chevrolet Camaro 2016 was built from scratch and is based on the Alpha platform, which replaced the obsolete Zeta platform. The Alpha platform provides increased rigidity of the body (more than 25%).

In the body there are elements of aluminum and carbon, which leads to a simplified design. The overall length of the Camaro somewhat decreased and together with the use of lightweight parts, the weight of the car lost 200 lbs. By the way, the new line of engines, installed on the Camaro, have more power.

The car’s ground clearance has decreased, than at the previous generation, however it is difficult on the surface, there is no tangible difference. Look at the Camaro coupe in front and it will seem exactly the same to you as the fifth generation Camaro Chevrolet. You can learn the novelty only on the rear windows, they have a slightly different shape, plus the rear stance is sloping.
